GEON: emotions is a psychedelic, pick-up-and-play game of rapidly changing tactics. Playing as one of eight emotions – Rage, Passion, Fear, Envy, Rapture, Courage, Bliss or Melancholy – players must race to collect pellets and score goals, using power-ups and their ‘emotional’ strengths and weaknesses. Geon emotions comes to Xbox LIVE Arcade this Wednesday, Sept. 19th, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. GMT (2:00 a.m. PDT).

The single player game mode will let players perfect their skills in a head to head duel or face the challenge of a ‘time attack’ and win medals to unlock the eight mini games. The multiplayer game mode enables players to battle friends in a split screen game or tackle players on Xbox Live to a duel or team game for 4 players.

Contenders will need passion to overcome their fear in order to rage towards the bliss of victory. Do you have the courage to look melancholy in the eye, give a rapturous performance and become the envy of all as the Master of Geon?

Love it? Hate It? Does it make you angry? Does it calm you down? Feel the energy of powerful emotions as you compete amongst your opponents to master the unique sport of Geon.

What’s your strategy going to be? Will you choose to spread fear among the other players, or unleash a wave of bliss with the aim of subverting their cause? Play to your emotional strengths; Allow your dark side to dominate, or win through speed, courage and style. You can be the master of Geon, but you must learn to use your emotion to your advantage.

In the world of Geon energy is king, small pellets called ‘E-motes’ hover above each side of the grid surface. Each player races to collect their E-motes and the first to score 5 goals is the winner. It sounds easy, but the skillful use of Powerballs is the real recipe for success!
